Fine Tuning was the name of XM Satellite Radio's Commercial-Free Eclectic music channel. The program director for Fine Tuning was Ben Smith and the tag line was, "The World's Most Interesting Music". The channel was on Channel 76 on XM Radio and on Channel 855 on DirecTV.
The channel was described as "A musical oasis for the sophisticated listener culled from every imaginable genre and country. You would hear Strauss living in harmony with Van Morrison in a completely new and revolutionary listening experience...an audio oasis. A unique mix of Classical, Jazz, Rock and dozens of other styles. And you would hear the unique perspectives of Quincy Jones as he characterizes American and world music, his influences on it, and linkages he sees, only on XM."
Fine Tuning moved around the XM dial throughout the years. Beginning in the Classical category on channel 111, it later moved to World channel 104. The February 2004 channel shakeup moved the eclectic channel to Rock at 49. It settled on its final home in Lifestyle at channel 76 in August 2004.
On November 12, 2008, XM Radio merged its music channels with those of Sirius Satellite Radio and removed Fine Tuning from its lineup.
